If you’re a long-time follower of my blog, this will seem familiar… just with a kid swapped out. You can read Emma’s hot-roll-making blog here. I love cooking with my kids, especially breads. To them it’s like play dough that you can eat. To me it’s just peaceful – the mixing, the kneading. I’ve fought myself for years going back and forth about whether or not to get a stand mixer. Ultimately I decided to go the “Little House on the Prairie” route, and just keep things simple. I am glad however, that I have the technology of the trusty ipod. You really can’t make good bread without a little music. Before kids I would open the kitchen window while I cooked and play the three tenors (goes well with baguettes). Somehow the drama of Nessun Dorma doesn’t do it for a two year old. Thankfully we can agree on Michael Buble. Here’s a few pictures of Ben’s kitchen adventure.
I guess I should note here that Ben had is own dough. There is no kid slobber in my baguettes!
Oh yeah… yum.
Do you think clients would like one of these as a “gift with purchase”? Maybe if they were being freshly baked when they came over for their proofing session? Or is that just cruel and manipulative? : ) Now if only I knew how to churn my own butter….
